Come and explore the basics of rocketry through a variety of hands-on experiments. Participants will learn rocket construction techniques and the science involved in rocket-powered flight. Together campers will create a plan for their rockets by applying what they have learned about real rockets to the construction of their own water-fueled rocket. Campers will learn how to calculate the altitude and range of their ballistic missile rockets as the week comes to end with the launching of their rockets.
This camp focuses on:
- Understanding the basics of flight and rocketry
- Identifying and understanding rocket construction techniques, safety, and the science and technology behind rocketry
- Analyzing flight attempts to identify what has worked and what has not worked in terms of flight
- Creating and launching of campers' own rockets
